Clouds Hanging Over Me
Clouds Hanging Over Me

dark clouds, ominous
feelings of dread swamping
me with foreboding
unable to get my breath
anxiety leading to yet another
panic attack to
disarm me
detach me from myself
alone and afraid I am
losing my mind

the past
confident no one notices
that there...Read More

Transformation
In our
faces.
Constantly,
in our
faces.
Glowing
screens.
Pumping,
pumping out
information 
constant
Information.
Inundating, 
swamping
the mind.
Washing over,
coursing through.
Minds smoothing,
ideas blending.
Minds altered,
losing 
individuality.
Cloud.
All spinning 
up,
up
into the
cloud.
Different, 
what returns
different 
not the same
not individual.
Old minds
filled with
yesterday 
fading away.
Old ways dying,
dying
with the old.
Soon,
transformation 
will be
complete!...Read More

Up in Arms

Another wave of voter vexation
is swamping the shutdown nation

To the left, 
the windpipes are hissing
To the right,
the windbags are dissing

And all of the kitchen cabinet aprons
got their middle fingers
pointing up     deaf adder listening   ...Read More

Premium Member My Prayers Never Cease Be
My soul at dawn  awake
A magic light into my heart breaks
Solitary whispers shivering in awe
Towards the Infinite my whole upraised
Allah is the greatest.
A frisson of wonderment swamping to the core
Powerless and unknowledgeable 
A humble human soul
In Your glorious presence...Read More

The Swamping Tide
When rent in sorrows I try to find
Another plane on which to set my mind
To distract it from the downward vibe
And thereby avoid the swamping tide

The swamping tide has no remorse
It will hold you if you cross it's course
The suction...Read More

The Deluge
THE DELUGE
 Placid waters sans piquant ripples
 Freaked out with furious,forceful  jerks
Reeking of rare reckless rumbling  rage
 Bloated brook  burst beyond banks, berserk

 Downhill town duped ,drenched, drowned and devoured
by  conniving crushing conqueror
 Merciless river ...Read More

eying the tide mark faintly etched on the brickwork 
of his once glorious house.

Dead City
Calculations of grief take stock in the supermarket pavement
midnight streets first impression to the concrete placement
black recycled oil stains painting with wires tired and lazy
contained by the curves a labyrinth never ceasing to amaze me
lights like traffic dividing and conquering...Read More

I Cannot Forget
I CANNOT FORGET

Forgetting is hard to do
When my mind constantly searches 
Its recesses for images of you 

I want to forget
But never will
I need to forget
But won’t willingly
I must forget
But that is unlikely 

My sanity ever so fragile 
Hinges on...Read More

he Mystery


Looking into my imaginations and soothe yourself
Because tomorrow I shall be ragging, storming, clashing, swamping and soaring
Pacifying nature’s commotion
Today, I am weak, pale, dry, and soak with emptiness and man’s abuse of my serenity
If you think my existence is an...Read More

There is going to be a family reunion
Unlike the family of mankind has ever seen before
In a thousand million life cycles

Earth people will shout for joy
At the site of their brothers and sisters
Who have been long separated from them
